We loved our tour with Tim. What a way to experience DC! We learned so much about the Black Broadway and the neighborhood including art/culture, urban planning, architecture and history. Tim is extremely knowledgeable, encourages questions and very obviously feels passionate about his work. Beautiful murals. Memorable stories. A real insider’s look at where so many legends began as performers, etc. Tim played some music for us and shared several excellent links for us after the tour including a personalized playlist from the tour. If you’re on the fence, book it! Highly recommend.

Tim's knowledge about DC's Black Broadway history is excellent. I am hopeful for a cultural and economic recovery for this vital community. i really enjoyed the soundtrack that Tim sent along afterwards. We really enjoyed our after tour repast at "Ben's Next Door."
